The Fairy Queen

after Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream

by Henry Purcell

The Fairy Queen December 7th and 9th 8pm on a background of a magical blue forest bathed in orange glow

Hermia and Lysander flee from the wrath of her father and the Athenian law, Demetrius chases after his love and Helena after him; four craftsmen turned amateur acting troupe members meet in the depths of the same forest that evening to rehearse their new play. These eight Athenians stumble into fairy realm in the midst of a feud between its rulers Oberon and Titania and for a night are caught up in the wonder, trickery and danger of this magic kingdom before being returned discombobulated, largely unscathed and somewhat changed to the real world the next morning. 

This adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream revels in the magic and darkness of Titania’s fairy realm with Shakespeare’s text set alongside five masques of English Baroque opera by Purcell. 

Note: The Fairy Queen contains sexual content, allusions to and threat of violence and depictions of misogyny.
